I'll totally admit that Having St.Patrick's Day and Easter so close together has kind of thrown me for a loop. I decided to put out a few simple touches for St.Patrick's and love how it turned out.
I filled my apothecary jars with faux green apples (I had a coupon for Hobby Lobby and so it ended up being the same cost as buying real Granny Smiths and I'll get to use them year after year), green gum balls (Target party section), Rolos and powdered sugar donuts.
The gold/coppery lid on the BEST CANDLE EVER added a little touch of gold to go with the Rolos...
... and I mixed together some of these bowls that I already had on hand. They're such an easy way to add festive color. (See how I used them for Valentines Day HERE).
I kept the rest of the counters pretty "standard", I switched out the Sid Dickens tile in the stand to one with a little gold.
I knew I wanted to put together a special little dinner setup for the kids and so I threw it together after school on Tuesday. I had stopped in at Target a few days earlier and they didn't have any dark green balloons so I ran with gold and white... which ended up looking a little bridal shower :) hahaha The kids still loved the balloons though - so no harm, no foul.
I had plans of doing all green food.... but then we had meetings after school and a night soccer game and so sandwiches it was :) hahaha
Luke reading his "Lucky to have you because..." note :)
I drew out the little Lucky note and shamrock (what's in black ink) and scanned it in in case you want them for lunchbox notes or a Lucky dinner of your own :)

Happy Thursday, Friends!!!
